Amsterdam Light Festival 2017

Amsterdam Light Festival 2017

The City of Amsterdam, with its museums, history and culture is a special enough place to visit any time of the year, but add…

Travel: Get into the Swing of Budapest

Created in derelict apartments, warehouses and factory buildings which were destined for destruction, they have not so much been lovingly restored, but taken over by the cool kids, and not one is the same.

Travel & Music: Festival No6, Wales

Fortuitously I was banking on the former when I confirmed I was going to Festival No 6 in North Wales. Anything in the vicinity of Wales, whatever time of year has the promise of rain. So even though, the friends who convinced me to make the six-and-a-half-hour drive told me it had been eternal sunshine last year, I was sceptical. And rightly so.

Travel: Sziget Festival, Budapest

If you have never been to Budapest, there is no better time than now!

A bold statement, but I can speak from personal experience that you will not be disappointed. If you are seeking art, culture, food or fashion, it has it all…It even has easy to navigate trams, a plethora of open air spas and of course the famous goulash stew.

A weekend in The Hague, Netherlands

We hop, skip and a jump over the water with Stenaline from Harwich to Hook of Holland. Leaving our base in Norwich at 6:30pm we’re on the boat enjoying dinner by 9pm. After a great nights sleep we arrive bright and early and are actually in The Hague by 9.30am on Saturday.

Travel: Coworth Park near Ascot

It’s a combination of classic old-school elegance meeting the modern day mod-cons, with all the thoughtful little touches you might expect from a luxurious Dorchester property.

Travel: Turkey for the Culture Vultures

Turkey is a HUGE and epic country, so choose your areas wisely when planning your trip. If you’ve got itchy feet (like me) I would recommend a transient vacation and spend a couple of nights in several areas, which not only keeps you perky- it is the best way to cram everything in this mammoth country in!
